Vampire Weekend: Fresh, Hot, Preppy Punks

“They’re very Royal Tenenbaums,” I said to K-Dub when she recommended this band, “in that punky, educated, hot geek kind of way,” and I stand by it. I’d add “early Police” too, and after hearing a few of the tracks, I’d tack on “gonna be gigantic, if nowhere else than in the Page household.” Plus, they’re just cute as hell.

Any band of twenty-somethings that describes its genre of music as “Upper West Side Soweto” and references Congolese soukous music is all right by me. Check out the rest of their Wiki entry for more… and enjoy.
